. we did a consent agreement with them earlier this year that called for a number of actions to happen because we do need better services for the citizens of detroit. they deserve it. and we need to achieve results. the problem is the mayor and the city council haven't been able to get on the same page. we are going through the process now of saying if they don't get it done, we are going to start a review, hopefully next week, that will go on for 30 days to say if it doesn't get done, there are other actions, including emergency managers that we should be considering for detroit. so i'm clearly encouraging the city and the mayor to get these issues on the table, have them work together and get resolutions so we can move forward and get detroit growing again. >> explain to me the emergency managers. does that mean the state steps in and does the job for them? is that what you mean? >> yeah. in michigan we've had a statute for some time. we had some controversy and we're under the old statute now. this goes back to many years where we had emergency manager status. they can come in, work

conversation about action as well, but then we have to be careful because there is a reason why people use violence, why crazy people gravitate toward it, and militarism gravitates towards it, and part of the reason is that we as human beings find violence so compelling. so there is something difficult here if you watch the coverage and we have been through it before which is how do we make sense of this and how do we not turn away, because that is also a problem and social change and problem if you want to do anything about anything. but if you gorge on it without some sort of understanding of what the people are going through in that trauma, then we do risk exacerbating certain dynamics. >> i want to take a break and bring you in, michael, because i want to ask you about the other bigget big ethics question, is this time to talk about gun control. we know the critique that it is not the time. i want to make the critique, that it is time to have that argument. we will bring you the latest developments in newtown, connecticut, throughout the morning. stay with us. for those with visions of

-- >> uh-huh. megyn: -- in the absence of any command action to do the same could leave an objective observer feeling that the judge was not impartial. now, this is him, by the way, before he got charged with murder. you can see how important it was for him to have his beard before he got charged with murder. suddenly things changed once you have to be identified in court by the witnesses who say they saw you shoot and kill 13 people. but why -- is that true? were there no command action to him by his superiors in the military to shave the thing? >> no, that's the interesting nugget in all of this, is if it really is the responsibility -- which it is -- of the command and not the court to insure that he shaves his beard, then who's that commander? he didn't immediately move on forcing those standards. as you mentioned, this was not something he was doing in 2009, 2010 or 2011. just recently decided to do it as part of his delay in protest. you're a lawyer, i'm not, megyn, but i know a truism of defense attorneys is if the facts are against you, argue the law. if the law's against you

on president obama to take bold action on the controversial issue of global warming. welcome to "america live", i am megyn kelly. the nrdc has issued a groundbreaking proposal to cut pollution in america's power plants, saying that the epa can and should be used. rules for hundreds of existing power plants, bypassing congress altogether. this kind of proposal would obviously have huge economic impact that could spread across the industry that employ hundreds of thousands of americans. the coal industry. chris stirewalt is our digital politics editor and host of power play. this group has emitted this proposal and wants the epa to take control of these admissions in a way that president obama could not get through congress. he submitted his cap and trade proposal when the democrats controlled the house and senate. nancy pelosi got passed in the house. now this group is going to the epa in saying that you just do it, crack down on these admissions yourself. the supreme court has said that you have this power. go for it. the eta said no, for now. reporter: the epa probably wishes that the group
are headed, the united states is headed into military action considering what we know about the red line, if you will, that hillary clinton laid out pretty clearly? >> it was very important for her to draw a very clear line. because any use of chemical weapons has to be responded to internationally. i'm sure the secretary of state is immersed with russia right now, is in negotiations with russia for a united front against this absolutely unacceptable possibility. >> okay. so she's laid that out. but then the next step, of course, if, in fact, they're putting together the components that create sarin gas and they're leading these into weapons, are we going to war insider to stop this? the united states. >> i think that the u.s. is going to be laying out a series of actions in partnership with some other states that will be taken, should they use these chemical weapons. and it is my hope and i think the hope of everyone on this planet that a fierce and united international response will ensure that syria does not actually consider using these weapons. >> let's talk about the fiscal cliff.
that the whole world is watching his actions very closely, and if he were to use chemical weapons on his own people, it would clearly have large consequences for him. bill: secretary of state hillary clinton called an emergency meeting with the pentagon. >> the pentagon has contingency plans for everything including the chemical attack. it's believed according to a u.s. source that syria has put this sarin fast into cannisters that could be dropped from planes. these cannisters are designed to fracture so the devastating nerve gas could escape. but it's not known whether syria intends to use those chemical weapons. we think we have it in aerosol form. the u.s. is making contingency plans in case bashar al-asaad leaves the country suddenly and flees somewhere for asylum which would leave a vacuum there. several countries in that region are trying to find a place for assad to go. secretary of state hillary clinton has a just-added meeting today in dublin, ireland. here you see her earlier today. she and the russian minister decided to meet with the envoy to syria. across barbra himybill: russi
cliff. the leaders i talked to today know their actions will take us over a cliff. i understand there is now perception among the media. the no tax increase republican ares regard the stance as a birthright. a guy that is so anti-spend that he seemed to care more on these issues and more about the accountability for the disaster relief money. i can't believe that. but a lot of guys down there will do anything to prove a point. but i can tell you there are enough garrets to force us over the cliff. given that the garrets are over there. got a question either people don't know about the cliff or they believe that the deal will be done. and they that they have fulfilled the nor quist pledge. where were the republicans when they cut taxes from the chinese two, why didn't republicans press for spending cuts when the president extended the tax cuts? and why doesn't the president offer spending cuts to medicare and defense and social security? how about weapons programs that don't fit in the terrorism world. how about foreign aid and maybe trying to be helpful, i'm sure some of today's
, this action is yet another example of north korea's pattern of irresponsible behavior. the united states remains vigilant in the face of north korean provocations and fully committed to the security of our allies in the region, devoting scarce resources to the development of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons has not brought north korea security and skaept tans by the international community and never will. jenna, as you mentioned the u.n. security council is meeting as we speak behind closed doors. the north koreans have very little to fear in terms of serious sanctions as a result of this action because of course its friend, china is on the security council and has blocked those kind of actions in the past, jenna. jenna: interesting that you mentioned china. is there any indication that the north koreans had help from the outside? any sort of outside country with this launch? >> reporter: well there is no evidence per se but it is widely known that the north koreans could not get the parts for their ballistic missile program without having those parts flown through china, bypassed
